About Mrs. Young

Hello students and families! My name is Lisa Young, and I am so excited to begin my fifth year of teaching at the Battle Lake School. I am blessed to be teaching in the town that my family and I live in and call home. This is my 14th year of teaching overall; I have taught third grade for 11 years, as well as a year each in first grade and sixth grade. I also worked for several years as a substitute teacher and as a paraprofessional in the Title 1 program for two years in Battle Lake as a Reading interventionist. I grew up in Staples, Minnesota. I graduated from Moorhead State University (now MSUM) and have taught in Ray, North Dakota, Fergus Falls, MN, Verndale, MN, and now Battle Lake. I have three children; Nathan, a graduate of University of North Dakota,; Andrew, who is attending MSUM for Law Enforcement, and Maia, who is attending Mstate in Moorhead for Dental Hygiene. We live on Ottertail Lake and enjoy all the activities that living on a lake entails; boating, skiiing, wakeboarding, swimming, and just enjoying the beautiful sunsets. In a few months, we will enjoy snowmobiling as well, but I am happy to wait for that! I love teaching third graders and am looking forward to getting to know my students and helping them develop a love of learning. I work hard to develop engaging lesson plans, but I have learned that it takes a joint effort from home and school to help students grow to be the most successful students they can be. I will be in contact with you frequently to let you know how you can help me help your child succeed. Please feel welcome to reach out to me anytime with questions or concerns. The best method for private messages is email; I can be reached at You may also write a note in your child's planner; I will be checking them everyday. I am looking forward to working with you!
